A breathtaking vision of the New West, Sheridan is Wyoming’s emerald city. Historic downtown doors swing wide open to extend a warm hospitality as legendary as the icons and outlaws that once roamed these parts, while fabled history and dramatic mountain vistas meet western graces and the serenity of wide open spaces. Gaze at the neon signs lining Main Street in our Historic Downtown, embrace Native American history at the remarkable Brinton Museum, ride out into the ranches that dot the foothills, and hike the endless canyons that bookend the Bighorns. This is Wyoming the way it was always meant to be.
Welcome to the thrillseeker’s wonderland. The Wyoming experience lives in every ponderosa pine, alpine lake, worn-out saddle and secret canyon in Sheridan. Summit the legendary peaks of the Bighorn Mountains, crush fresh powder on skis or sleds, sing your heart out at a 3rd Thursday Street Festival, and unwind on a patio with a pint of local liquid gold in hand.
This is a place where cowboys convene over craft beer and coffee, where pronghorn spring over canvasses colored with Indian Paintbrush, and where the majestic peaks of northern Wyoming stand forever proud. Fabled cowboys once kicked up their boots at the Sheridan Inn, while modern mavericks revel in Old West charm at Sheridan’s bistros, cafes and brewpubs.
Outdoor opportunities are near limitless when you’re roaming open range on horseback, backpacking unchartered territory or fishing pristine mountain waters. Ski some of the country’s most remote backcountry, climb to unfathomable heights in the Cloud Peak Wilderness or Tongue River Canyon, or bike miles of country trails as you close in on the mountains. Sheridan is the trailhead to Wyoming’s boldest outdoor experiences.
Sheridan’s calendar features epic summer events like the WYO Rodeo, Big Horn Country USA, and the Wyoming Theater Festival, while the Suds N’ Spurs Brewfest, Don King Days, Biketoberfest (and more) round out the year.
